There is no way to subscribe someone to a Campaign via text. You need to have a primary email address for a contact in order to assign them to a campaign. If your contacts do not have an email address, you will not be able to assign them to a campaign; however, you will still be able to send them resources.
There are two significant issues with text campaigns:
- Currently, the text comes from you through your phone. RapidFunnel only provides the content of that text. The only way to do a text campaign that is sent automatically would be to send it from a number that RapidFunnel controls (think of those 5-digit numbers you get advertising stuff from). This means, if the person replied to that text, it would come to RapidFunnel, not to you.
- Texts are basically for conversation. Hypothetically, even if RapidFunnel could overcome the technical challenges above, if a message and resource were sent out automatically to your prospect via text, they would think you had just sent it personally and would expect you to be available for a conversation. If you were unavailable for hours or days after they received a seemingly personal text, that would not be professional. Additionally, different time zones mean that automated texts sent could arrive at any time and may be intrusive.
Email is different, in that RapidFunnel can send from our server but the reply goes to you.
